Maxfield Parrish on the banks of the Flint River

Is it just me or are these idyllic images of the Flint River I keep running across starting to look dangerously like a Maxfield Parrish painting?


  1. it would take a Parrish to make the river look like a river. if it still does the phosphoresent thing maybe Warhol...

  2. How long would Maxfield's girlish imps survive in Buick Town?


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
